Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ALCINA
Ora intendo perché l'arme vestì;
crudei, spergiuro!
di lui, di or farne vendetta io giuro.


Ah! mio cor! schernito sei!
Stelle! Dei!
Nume d'amore!
Traditore!
T'amo tanto;
puoi lasciarmi sola in pianto,
oh dei! perché?


Ma, che fa gemendo Alcina?
Son reina, è tempo ancora:
resti o mora,
peni sempre, o torni a me.

English Libretto or Translation:

ALCINA
Now I mean why the weapon was dressed;
crude, perjury!
I swear by him or revenge him.


Ah! my heart! mocked you're!
Stars! Gods!
Nume of love!
Traitor!
I love you so much;
you can leave me alone in tears,
oh gods! why?


But, what is moaning Alcina?
Son reina, it's still time:
remains or blackberry,
always pen, or come back to me.
